Pollinating Flowers

This week in science we have been learning about how flowers are pollinated and their reproductive parts. The reproductive parts include;

  • Stamen - produces the pollen
  • Stigma - is sticky so it makes the pollen stick to the plant from a bee, it then sends it to the ovaries
  • Style - sends down pollen from the stigma to the ovary to store 
  • Ovaries - hold reproductive cells which will become a seed when fertilised by pollen
  • Carpel - the name for the ovaries, style and stigma altogether 

We created 3D models of flowers, using paper, cotton buds, straws and blu-tac
